Tie Ice House
Some people swell up on "emotion"
brewed from absolute untruth.
It's an old trick of the leaders of the
Labor Trust to twist facts and make
the "sympathetic ones'' weep at the
ice house." (That's part of the tal
Gompers et al sneer at, spit upon and
defy our courts, seeking sympathy by
falsely telling the people the court
were trying to deprive them of free
speech and free press.
Men can speak freely and print opiu-
conventlons and thus carry out the
leaders' schemes, frequently abhorrent
to the rank and file; so it was at the
iate Toronto convention.
The paid delegates would applaud
and "resolute" as Gompers wanted, but
now and then some of the real work
ingmen insist on being heard, some
times at the risk of their lives.
Delegate Egan is reported to have
said at the Toronto convention;
"If the 'officers of the federation
would only adhere to the law we would
ions freely in this country and no court think a lot more of them."
will object, but they cannot be allowed
to print matter as part of a criminal
conspiracy to injuro and ruin other citi
zens. Gompers and his trust associates
etarted out to ruin the Bucks Stove
Co., drive its hundreds- of workmen out
of work and destroy the value of the
plant without regard to the fact that
m hard earned money of men who work
ed, had been Invested there.
The conspirators were told by the
courts to stop these vicious "trust"
methods, (efforts to break the firm
that won't come under trust rule), but
instead oS stopping they "dare" the
courts to punish them and demand
new laws to protect them in such de
structive and tyrannous acts as they
may desire to do. The reason
Gompers and his band persisted in try
ing to run the Bucks Stove Works was
because the stove company insisted on
the right to keep some old employes
at work when "de union" ordered
them discharged and some of "de
gang" put in.
Now let us reverse the conditions
and have a look.
Suppose the company had ordered
the union to dismiss certain men from
their union and, the demand being re
fused, should institute a boycott
against that union, publish its name
- In an "unfair list," instruct other man
ufacturers all over the United States
ot to buy the labor of that union, have
committees call at stores- and threaten
to boycott if the merchants sold any
thing made by that union. Picket the
factories where members work ' and
slug them on the way home, blow up
their houses and wreck the works, and
even murder a few members of the
' boycotted union to-teach them thay
must obey the orders of "organized
It would certainly be fair for th-s
company to do these things if lawful
for the Labor Trust to do them.
In such a case, under our laws the
boycotted union could apply to our
courts and the courts would order the
company to cease boycotting and try
ing to ruin these union men. Suppose
thereupon the company should sneer
at the court and in open defiance con
tinue the unlawful acts in a persistent,
carefully laid out plan, purposely in
tended to ruin the union and force its
members into poverty. What a howl
would go up from the union demand
ing that the courts protect them and
punish their law-brealcVig oppressors.
Then they would praise the courts and
' 1 go on earning a. living protected from
ruin, and happy in the knowledge that
the people's courts could defend them.
How could any of us receive protec
tion from law-breakers unless the
courts have power to, and do punish
- such men.
.The court is placed in position where
" It must do one thing or the other
punish men who persist In defying its
peace orders or go out of service, let
anarchy rign and the more powerful

V Peaceable citizens sustain the courts

reference is to "violent" members of

That Is an honest Canadian view of
our infamous "Labor Trust."
A few days ago the daily papers
printed the following:

acterizing the attitude of Samuel Gom
pers, John Mitchell and Frank Morri
son of the American Federation of
Labor in the contempt proceedings in
the courts of the District in Columbia,
in connection with the Bucks' Stove
and Ilange company, as "a willful, pre
meditated violation of the law," Simon
Burns, general master workman of the
general assembly. Knights of Labor,
has voiced a severe condemnation of
these three leaders. Mr. Burns ex
pressed his confidence in courts In
general and in those of the District of
Columbia in particular.
APPROVED BY DELEGATES.
This rebuke by Burns was in his an
nual report to the general assembly cf
hig organization. He received the
apparent impossibility to fill his place
has gone to his head, and made him
imagine that he is much greater a
man than he really is, is undoubtedly
the case, and accounts for the tactics
he has adopted in dealing with ques
tions before congress, where he has un
necessarily antagonized men to whom
organized labor must look for recog
nition of their demands, and where
labor measures are often opposed on
account of this very antagonism, which
would otherwise receive support.
"There Is no doubt but what organ
ized labor In this country would be
much stronger with a leader who was
more in touch with conditions as they
actually exist, and who would bring
to the front the new policies which or
ganized labor must adopt if it expects
to even maintain its present standing,
to say nothing of making "uture prog
ress." We quote portions of another article,
a reprint, from the same labor paper:
"Organized labor, through its lead
ers, must recognize the mistakes of the
past if they expect to perpetuate their
organizations or to develop the move
ment which they head. No movement,
no organization, no nation can develop
beyond the intellects which guide
these organizations, and If the leaders
are dominated by a selfish motive the
organizations will become tinged with
a spirit of selfishness, which has never
appealed to mankind in any walk of
life at any time since history began.
"It can be said in extenuation of cer
tain leaders of organized labor that
the precarious position which they oc
cupy as leaders has had a tendency to
cause them to lose sight of the object
behind the organization. The natural
instinct in man for power and position
is in no small measure responsible for
the mistakes of the leaders, not neces
sarily in labor unions alone, but in ev
ery branch of society. The desire for
power and leadership and personal ag
grandizement causes men who have
been earnest and sincere in their ef
forts in the start to deteriorate Into
mere poliaicians whose every act and
utterance is tinged with the desire to
cater to the baser passions of the
work and actions in accordance thereto."

heard It read at their annual meeting ganizations and this is undoubtedly
in this city,
"There is no trust or combination of
capital In the world." said Mr. Burns,
"that violates laws oftener than do the

to more dishonest, unfair and dishon
orable methods toward their competi

Mr. Burns said the action of "these
so-called leaders" would be harmful
for years to come whenever attempts
were made to obtain labor legislation.
"The Labor Digest," a reputable
workingman's paper, says, as part of
an article entitled "The beginning of
the end of Gomperism, many organiza
tions becoming tired of the rule-or-ruln
policies which have been enforced
by the president of the A. F. of L."
"That he has maintained his leader
ship for so long a time in the face ;f
his stubborn clinging to policies which
the more thoughtful of the working
men have seen for years must be
abandoned, has been on account partly
of the sentimental feeling on the part
of the organizations that he ought not
to be. deposed, and the unwillingness
of the men who were mentioned for
the place, to accept a nomination ih
opposition to him. In addition to this,
there is no denying the shrewdness
of the leader of the A. F. of L., and
his political sagacity, which has ena
bled him to keep a firm grip on the ma
chinery of the organization, and to
have his faithful henchmen in-the posi
tion where they could do him the most
good wenever their services might be
"Further than this, he has never
failed, at the last conventions, to have
some sensation to spring on the con
vention at the psychological moment,
which would place him in the light of
a martyr to the cause of unionism,
and excite a wave of sympathetic en
thusiasm for him, which would carry
the delegates off their feet, and result
in his reelection. .
"That his long leadership, and this
true when applied to the present lead
ers of the Federation. We mention
the Federation of Labor particularly in
this article because that organization
is the only organization of labor which
has yet found itself in direct opposition
to the laws of the land. There are
other organizations of labor whose
leaders have made mistakes, but they
have always kept themselves and their
organizations within the bounds of the
law and respected the rights of every
other man in considering the rights of
themselves and their constituents;
whereas, the motto of the Federation
is just the reverse, and unless the
leaders conform themselves and their
organization in accordance with the
laws, of the land, the leaders and the
organization itself must be disintegrat
ed and pass into history, for in Amer
ica the common sense in mankind is
developed to a greater extent than In
any other nation on the earth, and the
people, who are the court of last re
sort in this country, will never allow
any system to develop In this country
which does not meet with the approval
of the majority of the citizens of the

the leaders of the Federation by this
time. If it has not the leaders must
be eliminated. The organization which
they head has done many meritorious
things in times past and the people
are always ready and willing to ac
knowledge the benefits which their ef
forts have brought to their constitu
ency as a whole, but at the present
time labor organizations in general,
and the Federation of Labor in par

The great &0 per cent of Americans
do not take kindly to the acts of tyran

the rules of the Labor Trust and we
are treated to the humiliating spectacle

flOXiOO for Church Debt.
The annual reports read at thfe
meeting showed a flattering condi
tion in all branches of the church.
The work of canceling the debt has
been carried on in a specially grat
ifying manner. A subscription com
mittee was appointed a year ago to
solicit money to raise the debt on the
church property. The total amount
solicited by the committee amounted
to ?6, 241, which together with the
amount of pledges from societies and
individuals brings the total amount
subscribed to the church fund to
$10,500, payable within four years.
Inasmuch as this amount almost cov
ers the debt on the church, the sub
scription committee was dissolved
and Its work was turned over to the
board of trustees. .
